Rise Again

Very often, the human race marveled by its own intellect and strength tends to forget that we are one with the planet; and that we need diversity even for our own survival. Rise Again is a song of hope. it doesn't condemn but acknowledges that mankind has been wrong a lot of times in the past and that there is the opportunity to rise again as one with the planet.

Adjiminvi

This song is about hope. We surely have reason to think that this world is going to ruin. That there is no hope for us and for the next generations. But we must always remain positive. Each of us should do our part to make a difference. In this song, it's a mother (earth) talking to her children. she tells them everything will be fine. She tells them that there is no reason to be afraid because the good that we want for the world is within us. If we have the strength to go deep down, we can change the world, make it better
